CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Snowmobilers in New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont will have the opportunity to take part in an upcoming three-day weekend, when riders registered in any one of those states can explore the trails of the other two states for free.

The event takes place Jan. 29-31, 2016.

Snowmobilers legally registered in any of the participating states are allowed on trails in all three states. All other host state regulations apply, including speed limits, youth laws and Vermont’s mandatory liability insurance law.

New Hampshire and Vermont have held an annual reciprocity weekend since 2010. Maine passed a law in 2011 to join the weekend festivities.

The states have agreed to allow trail access without having to pay another state for the opportunity to ride there. Officials said it’s good for the economy of all three states.



“This weekend is one of the highlights of the winter for many resident and non-resident riders,” said New Hampshire Fish and Game Major John Wimsatt, who coordinates Snowmobile and Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle enforcement, registration and safety education for New Hampshire.
